Wow. I can’t believe the bachelorette festivities for my brother’s fiance are already over! The party started around noon on Friday a few weeks back, but for me it began weeks prior because I was on a mission to craft some cool stuff.
The bachelorette party took place at Kalahari in Sandusky, so right away I knew we all needed cute tumblers to sip from while poolside. There were so many adorable options to choose from on Etsy, but I wanted something a little more personal – and let’s be honest – cheaper. There were a total of 12 girls attending the party and at about $15 a pop, ordering custom cups was out of the question.
I was able to score some (free) tumblers with straws, only problem was my handwriting is not the greatest so I wasn’t convinced personalizing them with a Sharpie was a good idea. So I turned to PowerPoint. The bride’s colors for her wedding are coral so I whipped up some coral circle designs. Once I printed the labels, I wrapped them in clear tape. We were going to a pool, so they had to be somewhat waterproof. I finished them off with a little bling bling and attached them to the cups with a lace-type string.
Once the cups were personalized, I found some adorable paper roses (in corals and pinks) at the dollar section of Michael’s. Now, I know what you are thinking….I just wrapped the labels in tape to make them waterproof and now I purchased paper roses. That doesn’t make much sense, but trust me, I had a plan! I purchased some clear spray paint. Not only did it protect the roses from water, but made them much more sturdy.
My final step was to attach the flowers to the cup. I thought about tying them to the straw but then I found these adorable mini clothespins, I spray painted them with coral (white for the bride) and attached the paper roses to them and clipped them to the straw. I think they turned out pretty darn cute.
A few other crafts I put together were a sign for the door and a hashtag sign….then I got a little carried away….
We had an blast! Only 40 more days till she’s hitched!
